Series: Scandal at the House of Russell #3
Author: Anne Stuart
Published: September 23/14 by Montlake Romance
Genre: historical romance
Synopsis from Goodreads:
Viscount Griffiths suspects that there is more to his new cook than meets the eye—especially since it was a mistress he hired sight unseen, not a cook. With the hope that her passion in the kitchen will extend to his bedchamber, he humors the beautiful interloper. But when that passion burns to brightest love, revelations may shake both of their wary hearts…
The final sensuous book in the Scandal at the House of Russell trilogy will lay the truth bare.
This is one of those remarkable stories that is taken to another level by the characters. Stuart develops a remarkable couple for us to fall in love with. Their antics are endearing and make them very human. The misconceptions that they have about one another are heightened by the fact that only the reader knows it. It’s a heady mix when brought together.
As a whole, this was an endearing tale that I could barely get enough of. I’ll definitely be re-reading it & looking into more works by this author.
